|Detailed description of content||
The course is based on recent theories about the company's development, innovation and value creation in the light of its resources and surroundings. We focus on how modern companies and organizations use resources to create value. Value creation can be seen from different perspectives, where managers, employees, users and others can have varied interests in what value is created and for whom. In the course we work with an analysis of how different types of resources are involved in the creation of value, eg employees, users, knowledge resources and network resources, and we also focus on different ways of mobilizing resources.
